Maddie's Miracle bus aims to travel around the UK according to professional referrals or calls of help from other organisations and provide breastfeeding education and mother's support to new mums in need. From refugees, to women living in shelters, or those living in deprived areas where there aren't adequate services, or women who maybe can't physically leave the house to access support due to c-section, disability or illness. We believe that mothers are the foundation of society. Nurtured women will be better empowered to raise healthy and happy families and to make a positive impact in the world. Our services will offer breastfeeding education, guidance, emotional support and practical support to mothers in need. We wish to provide support that prevents vulnerable or struggling mums from deterioration and give them tools to thrive.

What we'll deliver:

  • breastfeeding education & guidance
  • emotional support
  • practical support

Why it's a great idea:

Breastfeeding education and support is grossly underfunded. Yet so many mothers struggle with it. Furthermore, vulnerable mums may struggle with sleep deprivation, mental health issues, or other maternal related matters without adequate support. The NHS is struggling with caregivers not having adequate time to give to new mothers. We aim to provide education and guidance and beyond this, offer practical support to vulnerable new mums, providing them with tools and coping mechanism for them to thrive. Or referring them to relevant organisations.

Steps to get it done:


Through supporting new mum and women in general, we are supporting their mental health and emotional wellbeing. We are supporting both women's and infant's health through breastfeeding education. Our project will also increase jobs, volunteering and education helping the local economy. We believe that the long-term imapct of our project means that better supported mothers will result in better families and healthier happier children.
